This year’s Sibos will introduce a range of new networking initiatives, conference streams and interactive events to facilitate high quality learning, conversations and business development opportunities.

The focus will be on delivering targeted networking and thought leadership opportunities and, in particular, to meet the needs of current and future leaders of the Sibos community. This includes:

The fourth day of Sibos is Talent Thursday, created to connect the talent of today and tomorrow. At the heart of the initiative is a commitment to bridge the gap between the present and future of the financial industry across people, traditional banking, ecosystems, business and technology. Compelling, tailored conference content and top quality networking will encourage critical dialogue and facilitate the exchange of new ideas to shape the future of financial services.
Sibos Spotlight will take place on a themed stage on the main exhibition floor. Each day we will tackle a topical industry issue by bringing together a range of voices from across the sector and facilitating a stimulating exchange of knowledge and ideas. The topics chosen will align with the sub-themes of the Sibos conference and will include big picture industry challenges such as open banking, customer experience, cyber security and banking for a better world.
Views from the Top is a new conference series where delegates can hear insights from some of the most respected, knowledgeable and interesting people from the financial industry and beyond. The programme will include leading CEOs from the financial industry and inspiring speakers from other disciplines, delivering a series of keynote speeches and fireside chats tackling industry issues, leadership skills and motivational techniques.
Sibos 2019 will blend conference and exhibition for an immersive experience which draws delegates through a diverse and engaging environment. Set across one floor and intersected by diagonal walkways, this year’s event has been designed to capture the imagination while being easy and intuitive to navigate. Attendees can also take inspiration from our Chat & Connect space, and relax and recharge in our gardens and Wellbeing lounge.
As an integral part of Sibos, the Discover Zone enables fintechs to meet senior decision makers from across the globe, who are keen to find innovative partners who can help them develop customer solutions for a digital first, data driven world. This year it will be bigger than ever, hosting more than 100 leading fintechs operating in areas such as regtech, cyber security, AI, machine learning, big data, blockchain, cash management and supply chain management.
The STAR scholarship supports the diversification of the financial industry and the next generation of female leaders. We have invited more than 30 banks from around the world to nominate a high potential, ambitious female employee to participate. The programme will foster the development of female talent by providing women in junior and middle management positions with opportunities to expand their networks and expertise, in order to support their progress to senior levels.
